Today was free coffee day at Coffee Bean. And I was very excited about an afternoon pick-me-up.
I tried the Mocha Mint Chip. It tasted ok, but for all the sugar in it, it wasn’t very sweet. And it had an artificial flavor to it. I drank it in 10 minutes flat, but it left a lot to be desired. Needless to say, after drinking it, I felt sluggish and unmotivated.
Good thing I have healthy friends who inspire me.
I grabbed my weights and tried to find a workout on demand…. but Time Warner pretty much stinks.
So I made up my own weight routine while I caught up on some Secret Life.
I haven’t lifted in a really long time, so I was fatigued earlier than normal. But I’ll just have to build it all back up again and hope for the best.
-Bicep Curls 20 reps x 2
-Tricep Dips 20 reps x2
-Lateral Raises 20 reps x2
-Crunches x 50
-Pushups (on knees) 10×2
-Tricep Pull Backs 20 reps x2
-Lunges x10 (each leg)
(all of these were done with 5lb weights).
We’re heading out for a walk now too. I love fresh summer air.
In other news, I have 31 dri-fit tshirts in my closet. 31!!! That’s crazy.
I feel guilty getting rid of race shirts (some of them are really nice!)
What’s your favorite race shirt?
I LOVE the ragnar one! And the one from my first Marathon. =)
I love these Dri-Fit shirts too!! Best invention since the breakaway jersey.. Have to say my favorite is the one the Greater Boston Running Club in Lexington gave out to DFMC runners who completed training runs over there last year. I wear that thing in all kinds of training and other activities in hot weather and it is awesome. Nice work GBRC (reminds me I gotta go pick up THIS year’s one). Happy Travels on your Europe trip!!
I wish I could have trained with you guys. Sounds like a great club. Thanks!
Love my first marathon shirt too. 🙂 The SF race is nice because it’s fitted. Can’t wait to earn my Ragnar, and that should happen this Septemeber!
I missed FREE coffee!!! ugh!
Yeah Time Warner did the same to me so I just lifted while watching Brothers & Sisters. I got winded right away but stuck with it for 25 minutes. Hopefully I’ll be able to do more soon.
